Symptoms seem contradictory
So I have been researching this as well as being highly sensitive for about a year now and still am not sure what is going on with my child. I know he is Highly Sensitive as described my Elaine Aron in The Hightly Sensitive Child. And as is common with that he does have symptoms of SPD as well but they are in several different categories.
For example, he is super sensitive to temperatures outside and water temps as well as super sensitive to smells, food textures, and lights but yet seems to never get dizzy. He hears things that no one else hears suggesting hypersensitivity and yet is often loud and plays very loudly. He loves to be active and yet can sit and watch tv or play with small toys for extremely long periods of time. He is emotionally sensitive across the board and has difficulty with new people and places in which I am not present and yet when at a playground seeks to play with total strangers and is bored if there is no one to play with or if no one will play with him.
Does anyone have this same thing going on or know what I should do? I have spoken to his pediatrician some but have not really gotten much info from her. Sorry this is so long! Thanks for letting me explain.
